The Parish Council currently have three Parish Councillor vacancies and would
like to fill all three places by co-option as soon as possible.

Parish Councillors meet once every two months to discuss and act on issues of
importance to the local community. The Parish Council sets and monitors how
a proportion of local taxes are spent in the Parish, make comment on planning
applications in the Parish and consider projects to help maintain, improve or
enhance the local area. Local Government is changing and Parish Councils are
seeing an increase in the responsibilities and opportunities to influence
decisions made that affect our local community.

If you would like to put yourself forward as a Clotton Hoofield Parish
Councillor, then please either get in touch with the Clerk to the Council or come along to the next meeting of the
Parish Council to introduce yourself.

If more people indicate their interest in becoming a Parish Councillor than the number of vacancies available, candidates will be asked to give a short verbal or written statement about why they are interested in the role, and the Parish Council will make their decision by a majority vote.

old *be listed on the current electoral role *live in Clotton Hoofield, or within 3 miles of its
boundary, or occupy as owner/tenant any land/premises therein or have a principal place of work within the Parish *must not be disqualified from holding office as a Councillor.
